Pirate Laws

Postby Jechbi » Sat Jun 13, 2009 6:38 pm

New TOS for Dhammic free-for-all? http://www.piratelaws.com

Just kidding, tho this one is pretty good:
Pirates do not say "please" or "thank you". The phrase "Arrr, I'll probably kill you tomorrow" is an acceptable alternative for "Thank you".

Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.

Greetings Jechbi,

International Talk Like A Pirate Day should be coming up soon, shouldn't it?

(looks it up...)

September 19th.

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Thanks Jechbi

Some of my faves...

No pirate shall attend a movie with less than an Arrrr rating.

If circumstances demand a career change, a move into real estate brokerage or tax collection shall be considered a lateral move and said individual may keep their pirate status.

No pirate shall ever sit on a toilet seat, for any reason.

Pirate Law: You can't spell pirate, without "irate". There's a reason for that, so don't even try.

No pirate will ever, ever raise his pinky when drinking any sort of beverage.

Under no circumstances does a pirate speak with a Ninja, unless he first decapitates that Ninja and uses his head like a sock puppet.

FABULOUS!!!!

Arrr, I'll probably eat his holy noodliness tomorrow.

just remember not to dress up as a pirate get drunk then head to a populated area with a real sword
